Rachel’s Low-FODMAP Glazed Carrots / Carrot Tzimmes; Gluten-free, Vegan

Low-FODMAP glazed carrots (or carrot tzimmes) are the best side dish.  All the kids love to eat their vegetables when enrobed in this sweet and delicious low-FODMAP glaze.  These are also very easy to make and refrigerate well for days.  Enjoy over your holiday season!

These low-FODMAP glazed carrots are a perfect side for my succulent low-FODMAP sweet and sour meatballs, or my low-FODMAP maple turkey breast.

Prep time: 50 minutes

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. petite or chopped carrots

  • 2 tbsp. butter, or vegan margarine for vegan version (I like Earth Balance vegan spread)
